RCMP investigate hotel break, enter and theft, Lower Truro, N.S.


Colchester District RCMP are investigating a break, enter and theft that occurred at a Truro area hotel over the past weekend.

At approximately 4:00 a.m. on Saturday October 10, Colchester District RCMP responded to a complaint of a break, enter and theft at the Comfort Inn in Lower Truro.

A preliminary investigation has determined that a suspect entered one of the rooms through an unlocked exterior door. When confronted by the lone occupant of the hotel room, the suspect struck the victim and fled with a quantity of cash.

The victim, a 58-year-old female from Antigonish, suffered minor injuries to her face and foot.

The suspect is described as a male, 5’11’, with light tanned skin.

At this point, Colchester District RCMP believe that this incident was a crime of opportunity, and the investigation is continuing.

If you have any information on this or any other crime, call Colchester District RCMP at 902-893-6820 or Nova Scotia Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS ( 8477), or by texting TIP202 + your message to `CRIMES`(274637) or by Secure Web Tips at www.crimestoppers.ns.ca. Calls to Crime Stoppers are not taped or traced and if police make an arrest and lay charges based on a tip, callers qualify for a cash award.
